TGA & NATA
Therapeutic Goods Act (TGA) regulates the supply of medical and therapeutics goods within Australia. Proof of successful testing to standards can be an important aspect of an application for certification by the TGA.
NovitaTech continues to liaise with the TGA with regard to the impact of the regulations on the custom manufactured and general assistive technology sector. Questions with regard to failed equipment should be directed to the TGA Medical Devices group in the first instance.
On the TGA website, you will find information such as:
- links to the legislation and other guidelines
- registration forms
- a link to the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG)
- a link to Device Electronic Application Lodgement (DEAL)
- information on how to report a problem with a medical device
